> > When using kismet with [-l log-types], I get the following error in the kismet server console: "FATAL: Malformed 'listen' config line defined for the Kismet UI server", and Kismet exits with error 0. I do not get this error when I do not use the '-l' option. It does not matter what log type I specify after '-l' and it also does this when specifying only one log type.

It appears the man page is erroneous. My man page is dated September 29, 2013. The output of --help is correct, though. The man page shows "-l Override logging types, comma separated (dump, cisco, weak, csv, xml, gps)" while kismet.conf shows the options, "alert, gpsxml, nettxt, netxml, pcapdump, string". I assume the kismet.conf list is correct and complete? Yes, -T is working for me. Thank you.
